Parlez-vous français? French was the first foreign language I learned, and it was definitely a gateway language. I loved learning every detail of the grammar, every rule, every inevitable exception. I took advanced courses at UCI as well as studied in a French university for a semester, so I have lots of materials for us to work with.

About Michelle
Hi! I'm Michelle, a world traveler/teacher who's here to help bring her experience and energy to students back home in California. I've taught various subjects such as test prep, English, history, and languages to students all over the world, such as China, France, and Ecuador. I've worked with students of all ages and love getting to know them to help figure out how they best learn.

I love learning languages in my spare time and practicing when I can. When I'm not looking a bit silly doing that, I'm usually reading, at a baseball game, hiking, or hanging out with friends. I keep active, making sure to run or climb a mountain when I can. However, it's equally as strong as my love for foods of all kinds.

I really look forward to getting to work with you and helping you with whatever I can!

Hey there! I'm Amanda! Let's work together on your goals towards learning French! Unlike everyone else listed here, I am not a language teacher, I am a language COACH. It's 2018; let's learn languages like it's the 21st century! As a PhD candidate at the University of Florida studying Linguistics, I have studied all the best ways to learn a language and would love to share my passion with you!

As your coach, I'll help you focus on your goals and hold you accountable for accomplishing them. I promote student agency and will help you to make your own choices about your own learning; this way each lesson fits your individual needs and differences. As your own language and success coach, we will not only work together to understand the target language vocabulary and grammar, but we will also delve into the metacognitive and self-regulatory skills necessary to study quickly and efficiently, feel comfortable speaking the language, and get ahead in other areas of your life as well!

About Amanda
Hi there! I'm Amanda!

Congratulations on starting/continuing your language journey in French! I would love to join you! I'm a PhD student at the University of Florida studying Linguistics with a specialization in Second Language Acquisition (aka the best ways to learn languages)!!! Different, from the other individuals listed here, I am not a language teacher, I am a language COACH. It's time to learn a language like it's the 21st century! Let's work together to reach your goals!

What is a language coach?

As a language coach, I enable students to focus on their goals and hold them accountable for accomplishing them. I promote student agency and allow students to make choices about their own learning; this way each lesson fits their individual needs and differences. As your own language and success coach, we will not only work t
ogether to understand the target language vocabulary and grammar, but we will also delve into the metacognitive and self-regulatory skills necessary to study quickly and efficiently, feel comfortable speaking the language, and get ahead in other areas of your life as well!

My mission for each lesson is to provide a language learning experience unique in its approach to incorporate strategy instruction including reducing foreign language anxiety, building agency, and developing self-regulated learning skills. My coaching objective is to help learners reach their second language goals through not only language teaching, but student empowerment as well. I aim to help students realize and build their own agency, resulting in a self-actualized, relaxed, and engaged learning environment. Through this one-of-a-kind coaching method, success is having my students end each tutoring session feeling positive, and eventually ending tutoring sessions all together knowing that they are competent, intelligible, and composed speakers of the target language.

I have been a language instructor and coach since 2009 teaching children English in France through the TAPIF program. I have taught/coached undergraduates French at both the Ohio University (where I earned my BA and MA in French) and the University of Florida (where I am earning my PhD in Linguistics). Further, I have taught English as a Second Language at the University of Florida as well as Santa Fe College.

As a researcher, I have focused my life's work and dissertation on the topic of lowering Foreign Language Anxiety in foreign language learners. Foreign Language Anxiety is often cited as the number 1 correlation to achievement in acquiring the target language. Do you get nervous when you attempt to speak the language that you've learned? Are you scared what others are going to think of you? Do you have perfectionist tendencies? Well, helping you manage Foreign Language Anxiety while learning French would be exactly my skill set!

While I am a seasoned, SLAT (Second Language Acquisition and Teaching) certified instructor and am able to teach at the university level, tutoring is my true passion. I began tutoring in 2008 at Ohio University and I have not stopped since. My youngest tutee was 4 years old and my oldest tutee, who is still working with me, is 72 years old. I can cater to all ages, language levels, individual differences, objectives and goals, attitudes, and motivation levels. Send me a message with any questions that you have, and we can chat and set some goals for your language learning journey.

I look forward to meeting you and helping you in any way possible in the world of French or ESL! Talk to you soon! :)

About Isabel
I love teaching, but I hate boring classes, so I always try to do different things to get the goal, which is learning. I also try to keep focus in what the student wants with class, be able to communicate, or improve grammar, writting, everyone is different, learn different and also want different things.

About Vivian L.

I believe that students should be given an opportunity to be shown how to practice. This is so that when the instructor is not there to guide, the student is able to know step-by-step of what they are supposed to do.

Learning the proper pronunciation of the French language is key to gaining confidence. Being French, I am in a unique position to teach my students the correct intonations. Learning is not just grammar and vocabulary, but studying the history, culture, food, monuments and habits of France go hand-in-hand with the joy of being on this adventure. Whether to pass a test or going to Paris for the first time, I make the journey exciting and fun. I can contribute expressions, recommendations and tips that only a native would know. It enhances the learning curb and adds excitement to the experience.

About Colette
Confidence is the key to learning a new language. With the correct pronunciation and intonation, you are starting on the right foot. I come from a very long lineage of French parentage and return to France every year. I bring back books and study material specifically to enhance my classes. Teaching is my passion and I love sharing the experience with students. Outstanding results are my goals. While grammar and vocabulary are required, we can also learn about the culture, the food, monuments, expressions, history, etc. I am very patient and will go to great lengths to ensure proper understanding. Whether young or more mature, student or visiting France for the first time, I will enhance your experience to make it fun, relevant and successful.

I had the opportunity to study in Paris, France and have a love for French language, culture and cuisine.
My focus is intrinsic learning based on functional grammar.
The fact that I have a masters in German ESL and French gives me the opportunity to compare cultures and languages in my teaching approach.

About Barbara
Hallo,Hello,Bonjour

I was born and raised in Germany and have a masters in German ESL and French. I had the opportunity to study in Paris, France and also worked as an assistant teacher in Oxford. After my studies in Germany I worked as an international exchange teacher for VIF, an American company, in Charlotte, NC and then went back to Germany where I received my lifetime position. I then returned to the US, Houston, TX with another teacher exchange program from Germany where I taught for three years and then returned to Germany again where I taught as the head of the French language department. After three years I went back to Houston, TX and worked at a German, British and French private school and then continued to work independently for my own business BU LLC Language and Learning Center. I work with corporate clients to prepare
them with language and cultural training when they start working in Germany, Austria or Switzerland. I also work with a lot of expads of all ages who either do not want to loose their mother tongue or want their children to learn it as part of their heritage. Moreover I teach online for the Air Force and with expads who went back home or to their destination country for work abroad. I love the fact that I meet and work with a huge and interesting variety of people of all ages from all over the world. I am a strong believer in intrinsic learning and I customize each lesson to the needs and goals of every student. I am very much looking forward to working on this platform.
